I disagree some with the gym take there. I’m a member of Orange Theory and Golds. At OT classes are normally 36, they are doing 12 at a time, every 3rd machine, and mandatory wipe downs. At Golds you need to schedule a time to move in a group on 5-6 with a trainer who makes sure you wipe down equipment for lifting, and book times at half hours for cardio. They are operating at 25% max capacity.I agree that the governor's orders seem inconsistent. I would argue (with infectious disease expert opinions to back me up) that gyms, for example, are far less safe than theme parks. There's frequent full-body contact with equipment, less personnel to enforce sanitation and social distancing, tighter spaces, and the entire thing is of course indoors.
I get the sense on here that some people don't like it when Northam's decisions are questioned. I for one think it's totally fair to discuss whether his policies could be better - what politician is actually 100% correct on every action they take?
